Birthday Girl

So hey, yesterday was my birthday! 

And today I'm having my birthday party. Because sometimes, you've just got to be like that. And I am. Because I've finally reached *an age* that means I can do exactly what I want. 

So, sit down! We're having my party in my library today. 



I know, it doesn't look like enough chairs. So I brought up some old-school rockers. They're quite comfy. 
Don't worry, though, the fire is going - it's a bit cold over here. 

Now don't be shy! Here's some food to keep you going. 

Cake is so last year, don't you think? I have a great idea - 


I know some of you are wanting the booze. It's over by the fireplace. This is what I'll be having - 
So...it's on! Pull up a seat or run through the house nekkid, leave a comment and celebrate my birthday with me!

Janna Qualman said...

Looks like a grand time will be had! Thanks for hostessing such a bash. :)

JKB said...

Thaaaaanks, NEW! Let me invite you to have some of the really nice Schwarzwaldkuche - or Black Forest Cake - that hubsie's Grandma made!!

Janna, have you tried those chocolate chip cookies? Dig in!
:))

Heidi the Hick said...

Well I'll have just a tiny slice of Kuche to celebrate before I head off for the day!

Your library is amazing, seriously. I am quite envious... actually your entire castle is stunning!

Comfy rocking chair too.

I'll take a drink to clink glasses but I'll let you drink it for me... I wouldn't want to fall off my horse today!

Happy birthday! Enjoy!!

(Watch out for the streakers eh?)

JKB said...

Ack, no streakers around here!

Good. If you eat the cake, good things will happen to you when you ride. It's a rule, did you know that?

JKB said...

Whoops, sorry

*Pulls cat out of cream where he was partially submerged, slurping away*

Let me go get a new pitcher...

JenWriter said...

Happy birthday!

JKB said...

Thanks Jen! :)

Stephen Parrish said...

Happy birthday, Squirt!

I love Berlin. We could do our conference in Berlin. Since you're going to live there, does that mean you get to do all the work?

pseudosu said...

I love that there's enough room in your library for Jack White and whatever band he shows up with to set up. (He IS coming of course, right?)

Thanks for all the treats and booze. I can't drink in RL, but can totally get cyber wasted w/ you-- just ask Heidi. Glug Glug Glug

Cheers BB! Happy Birthday! You RULE!

JKB said...

Stephen -

SQUIRT?!?! lol Yes of course, I'll do most of it...and you won't even have to worry about a hotel, seeing as we have an extra room! \o/

Pseu, Jack's here...Meg is having her issues, so she's taking Yoda for a walk. Johnny did manage to drop in, he's drinking absinthe over in the corner.

heh

JKB said...

OK, Meg's back and Yoda is exhausted. He's rolling up into his sleep circle near the fire...eyes are slowly closing...

I'm locked in the library with gooey cookies. I promise not to smear any books. Or dog ear them. Or bring them in the bathtub.

JKB said...

If they are my books, Kerri, I'm okay with you dog earing them. :)

*searches frantically for the other key to spring the cookies*

Didn't you do this same exact thing at HeidiTH's party? The shame. :)

Kerri said...

Yeah but I had alcohol with me. That I'd share. Cookies? No freakin' way. I'll unleash the zombie hoard first.

Kerri said...

Why. Can't. I. Spell. Today? Hordes. Hoards. I'm tired. Your parties drain me.

JKB said...

I think probably you've had too much tequila.

*slowly draws the 100% agave baaaack from Kerri*

The Husband said...

Hey bby, hello everyone. Happy birthday again. I am so proud that you embrace the ethereal realm of the Interwebs so much. Have fun with your virtual (but not imaginery) friends.

Hubs

PS: "merynes" - obviously the word verification is happy with how the party goes, as well.

JKB said...

SHHHH!!! (and oh, for the record, I misspelled kuchen. whoops)

*hands hubsie a nice slice of apple pie*

marsh to the fore said...

The parties is in full swing, sob, and I'm not there.

Except I guess I can raise a figurative glass of wine, sit back in one of those rocking chairs, lean back and look at ALL THOSE BOOK IN THAT AMAZING LIBRARY.

Looks like you've got quite a bash going. Happy Birthday!

JKB said...

Thanks, Marsh!

And no worries, we were waiting for you!

*hands Marsh a nice bowl of oreo ice cream*

Heidi said...

Sorry I'm late!! (I'm all panting and breathing hard from running to get here... can you tell??)

Here Jen: Happy Birthday (I am handing you a HUGE box of powdered donuts).

This is a stunning library, and those cookies look amazing!! I think I'll just sit in one of these comfy rockers and...

OOH! LOOK! A first edition signed copy of To Kill A Mockingbird!!

Patti said...

Happy Birthday, hope you have a great day. Love the library and the cookies, personally I'm not a cake person.

JKB said...

Hey, Heidi! I think I was stuck in the bathroom when you came by! ACK!

*hands Heidi the first edition because she's SO HAPPY HEIDI FOUND HER NEW IDEA!!*

Patti, I'm not a cake person either. whew. Non-cake lovers unite!
